Letter Sort with Capital and Lowercase Letters

Letter Sort with Capital and Lowercase Letters

This letter sort activity works on letter identification (in different fonts), sorting, and classifying capital and lowercase letters.


letter sort

A graphic organizer is a great learning tool and classifying/sorting is an effective way to reinforce any concept. B feels confident with his lowercase letters now so I thought I’d give this letter sort a try.

I divided the paper in half, one side for capital letters and the other side for lowercase letters. I cut out different letters from newspaper ads.

I put the dots on the paper so B would know where to put the glue and the letters. Otherwise they would just end up in one big pile in the middle. I had B tell me if it was a “Big Capital letter” or a “little letter” and then I’d tell him which side to put it on. After awhile he could figure out what side the letters should go on by himself.

Another great thing about this activity is the different style of fonts that I cut out. This activity was a hit! Later in the day I got out upper and lowercase letter stickers to put on the chart but he wasn’t as interested. I’m not sure if he was tired of the activity or if glue was the real hero here.

These are all great ideas! I can tell you are a teacher. It never really gets out of your system, does it? I taught high school English, and I'm always having the urge to bust out my red pen. :P

This is such a great idea. I have typed up fonts before to use for sorting but this looks so much more fun. Thanks
